The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith

by

The Weight of a Mass: A Tale of Faith Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the kings wedding mass as payment for the bakers generosity. The baker writes “One Mass” on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire towns surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book and gold foil artwork lends an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story.

Synopsis:

Luminous watercolor paintings and an old-world story reveal the true worth of faith.
